Without Merit by Colleen Hoover Review (SPOILERS)

The Voss family is anything but normal. They live in a repurposed church, newly baptized Dollar Voss. The once cancer-stricken mother lives in the basement, the father is married to the mother’s former nurse, the little half-brother isn’t allowed to do or eat anything fun, and the eldest siblings are irritatingly perfect. Then, there’s Merit.

What I Read From My 2017 Young Adult TBR

In May last year I created a list of ten Young Adult books that I wanted to read by the end of 2017. They were all books that I was really looking forward to reading at the time, and wanted to order them so I would remember the next YA book I wanted to read. I managed to read most of them and have reasons as to why I didn't read the others.

Blogmas Day 2: Two Christmassy Books To Read

It seems as though there is a shortage of Christmassy books due to Christmas only lasting around one month (or less, or more, depending how you look at it). I have only read three books that are Christmas-related and, coincidentally, they are all Young Adult. Today is Day 2 of my 6 Days of Blogmas posts and I thought it would be odd if there was not at least one post about Christmassy books!

6 Days of Blogmas Announcement!

Christmas is a very enjoyable time of year for me and to celebrate its festiveness I am going to be posting Christmas/bookish posts in the days leading up towards the big day. Instead of posting everyday, I am going to post something every second day, but it will still be the twelve days leading up to Christmas. The first post will be up in two days! I will be using Australian time, so if you are from another time zone you may see it a day earlier. The posts won't all necessarily be Christmas-related or book-related, but it will be a good mix.

Summer Reader Book Tag

Jess @Reads and Dreams tagged me a while ago to do the Summer Reader book tag. It is summer in Australia, even though the entirety of December has only been between 16c-22c in Melbourne so far. It felt like it was over 30c everyday in November, so that is really weird. Summer is my favourite season because I love going outside when it is hot, and winter is stupid. Let's get onto the tag!

How I Did in the 2017 PopSugar Reading Challenge

At the beginning of the year, I saw that PopSugar were hosting a reading challenge over 2017 and thought it would be a great challenge to keep in mind throughout the year. To be honest, I only looked at it once, but have read over 50 books this year and many of them related to one of the prompts. I didn't do all of them, but I did manage to do most!
